#73: Zone Leader

Hey!  How's things going?  Well, things are REALLY different! hahaha  To start, me and Johnson have changes (transfers) but we are in the same zone, just not together. He is going to be a trainer to a greenie, which means he has a "kid"!! haha I was put as a ZONE LEADER in Chuviscar!!  I'm still here in Chihuahua, but I'm closer to Centro. It's about 30 minutes from the offices from my old area.  My companion is the zone leader that I had in Cuauhtemoc-Elder Sanchez, from Guatemala!  He will be the senior companion since he will be the one to teach me everything I need to know to be a zone leader.  I'm guessing then that in the next cycle, he will leave and I will stay and be the ZL1. haha  I'm really excited, but nervous at the same time!  But I will learn lots from this new assignment!  I will try everything to be a great example of love and hard work for those other missionaries.

I don't now much about the area yet, but we should be having a baptism soon.  Our place has a DRYER though!!!!!!! I haven't seen one of those in 16 months!! It will be just me and my companion living there.   Tomorrow, the zone leaders are going to show the new Christmas video from the church.  It doesn't come out though until the 25th, so we get to see it first! :)

I got your Thanksgiving box!  It was nice to get before I left because I loved the elders I was living with there!

Nain wasn't baptized but we are gonna stay in touch!  I wanna return to Villas Del Real for his baptism! On Sunday, he brought his whole family to church though.  We didn't even know they were coming!

I did get the pic from Brecken going to the JA dance...Wow!  How sweet!  Also, why did you let him go, but not me or Brooke? hahaha

Wow!  Dad got a truck???!!! You need to send me a picture, like today!! Are you guys gonna pick me up in that from the airport?  I'll be down! Throw my bags in the back and the fam up front! hahaha  EVERYTHING is changing back home!  I will not feel I'm in my own home again ;) haha  Like when Brooke said she'll email me from her iPad! When did she get that??   iPAD!!??!! BABIES!!!!! NEW TRUCK!!!!

Love your missionary,
Elder Fowler

This week's scripture:
Alma 26:37
Now my brethren, we see that God is mindful of every people, whatsoever land they may be in; yea, he numbereth his people, and his bowels of mercy are over all the earth. Now this is my joy, and my great thanksgiving; yea, and I will give thanks unto my God forever. Amen.

(Here's the Thanksgiving Turkey I sent to Preston to share
with those he was living with.  Glad he got it before
they were all transferred)
(Last week, Elder Johnson explained that there is a man that they
have been teaching, that had stepped on a piece of glass about a month
ago.  He finally was seen by a doctor and ended up having his big
toe and the one next to it cut off!  Whenever the elders go to see
them, the man asks them to clean and change the bandages.  If
you know Preston, he has a weak stomach for things like this. His
companion, Elder Johnson was always the one to clean and change
the bandages while Preston stood way back.  I was super surprised
to see Preston in these pictures that close, WITH gloves on and actually 
cleaning the man's foot!  I'm guessing he was coaxed into it :)  Now that 
Elder Johnson and Elder Fowler have moved to a new area, this man 
will need to find a new nurse)

(This parade was for the November 20th Revolution.
 The schoolhad a parade with all the kids)

Last day as companions
Elder Johnson & Elder Fowler

(These four lived in the same house until today since it was transfer day)
Elders: Chan, Fowler, Johnson, & Harrison
(These four got along great)

(Love this-Elder Johnson on far right, with his new companion.
Check out right behind them-It's Preston and his new companion
and Preston is on the computer emailing home!!)
